Has Jason Statham signed on for a role in the upcoming action flick Fast and Furious 6? Online rumors suggest the Expendables could make an appearance in the follow-up.
Although past rumors have suggested that Jason Statham would star in the upcoming sequel, nothing about his participation was ever confirmed. According to Cinema Blend, his name was mentioned alongside other reports that ultimately proved to be false.
With the movie’s release date just months away, another report has surfaced suggesting Statham will have a role in Fast and Furious 6 after all. Although nothing has been confirmed by anyone, Ain’t It Cool News says the action star’s involvement will help set the stage for the next installment.
If you’re the sort of individual who doesn’t enjoy spoilers, then you may want to skip the next part of the article. Statham’s role in the upcoming flick is tied in directly to the sequel’s ending.
Once all the bad guys have been dispatched by Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Dwayne Johnson, the film then cuts to a race in Japan. After two cars are involved in a collision, one the drivers is revealed to be Jason Statham. The other individual is Sung Kang, who played the character Han in the franchise. All of this suggests that the next sequel will take place around the same time as Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
Since AICN can be hit and miss with its reports, Statham fans should probably take the news with a grain of salt until they see the aforementioned sequence for themselves. Fast and Furious 6 is currently slated to arrive this May.
The first full trailer for the flick has been included below.
